Advertisement for vacuum-packed canned coffee that was produced primarily for screening
at the 1939–40 New York World’s Fair. In the narrative a young puppeteer proves to his
prospective father-in-law, a coffee packer, that puppeteering is a viable occupation by using
marionettes to tell the story of coffee. The young man uses 80 string puppets and deep,
dimensional sets to explain how coffee is grown, harvested, roasted, and packed in vacuum
cans to retain flavor. NOTE: Also distributed in 16mm. Written and supervised by National
Tie-Ins Inc. (from Business Screen review).

Watch Out for the tiny spiders!
A bit of a never ending moving about a boy who wants to marry a girl, but the girl's father, an owner of a coffee company, doesn't like the boy's chosen profession… Puppetry!! To convince the father, a boy puts on a puppet show about the history of coffee and how it's made!! As looney as that sounds, it gets boring quite quickly with never-ending gabathons. It does get a little surreal in the end though.
